In view of the increases in street violence , increasing in singular ideological education in high schools and college campus' , resistance and manipulation of organised labor in law enforcement , obstruction of due process in government legislation , by controlling the news media , in major obstructionism to immigration policy, obstructing border controls and national security , At what point does civil discourse become sedition ?
If there is civil war, the brutes on the right will start it. If you all think that you can control legal assembly and dissent, then let it come, bring it.....
Violence from either side is justifiable if democracy is squashed. That's a pattern throughout history.
It's hard to imagine how the left can start a civil war when the right controls most of the guns in this country. If the left does start something, it will more likely take the form of civil disobedience.
We must protect our democracy and its freedoms at all costs. Better to die on you feet than live on your knees.
Many of the righties that cling to guns and promote their ideology are cowardly at the heart and as a result will not prevail.
"..........The right controls most guns ?.........Seems to me civil discourse has already come from the left , protests , burning , destroying others property , cop killings, flag burning and disrespecting others ideologies , campus revolts , sequestered speech ,.......Better hope the old silent majority never does rise up.
Any comments on that this right you speak of never protests , burns cruisers , kills cops , riots in the streets ,.............................?
I think a civil war will break out sooner or later. Maybe it will be a false flag event that starts it. Example: Someone empties a gun on a crowd of violent Soros protesters. The left blames the right, when actually it was staged to appear that way when the opposite is true. They subvert the truth. The left never opposed mowing down their own brown shirts, because they can't be trusted anyway. Anyone who doesn't stand for justice, freedom and liberty will fall for anything.
Well, that's one scenario.
Remember when Hillary tweeted, “Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election. That’s a direct threat to our democracy.”
In the real world: The direct threat to democracy then would be the left not accepting the results of the this election. Actions do speak louder than mire word.

This past week Maxine Waters asked her flock to harass our presidents Cabinet and those that support Trump. Some of the media has followed up on her discriminatory words and pushed the concept of harassing American citizens for their political views. It's amazing that this form of pure...

This country is supposed to allow dissent, but it seems the Right always says "love it or leave it.'" What does this show? Those of you that are conservatives, and use this phrase, is it not a little closed minded? I am told this all the time on the Hub Pages because I am a member...

Is it possible for the right and the left to have a civil conversation?What I continually see, whether conservative or liberal, is the hatred between the two sides. Is it not possible to question what one side believes and keep it civil?

With the divide growing between left and right will it take violence to settle these issues? It was similar disagreements that caused the first and what was accomplished? Death and destruction and we all know thats better than compromising.

Just after Same-Sex marriage was legalized in California - It's been immediately asked to be "intervened by the court". Should it be? After all, isn't that how a democracy works?
